Paul Merton wearing a Hastings Beatles Day shirt.

supplied by Stewart Rockett

Stewart Rockett… Spotted on BBC’s ‘Have I Got 30 Years For You’ retrospective, Paul Merton wearing a Hastings Beatles Day shirt.

Tim Harris… Has a place in Winchelsea doesn’t he ?

Adrian Stannard… Comedy genius

Kathy Wood… I spotted that shirt

Tony Court-holmes… i believe he lived in fairlight for a while

Glenn Piper… yes he did

Perri Ann Haste… Well spotted!

Alan Esdaile… collectors item.

Stuart Moir… Has he got lippy on ??

Iain Cobby… Paul was married midsummers day 21.06.03 at Rye Town Hall , same day as my wife Joanne and I were married at Peasmarsh Church, my good friend Mr Tony Davis giving a reading. Some of my guests witnessed Pauls bride arrive on the back of a horse , sadly she died and he moved away from his Fairlight home. He’s always been a great comedian, and part of our memories of that day!

Sheila Maile… yes he is brilliant on hignfy. He was also married to Caroline Quentin in the early days

Remember horizontal & vertical adjustments on the TV and slapping it to make it stop?

Marcus de Mowbray… Me. Now it’s just as bad, but replaced by picture break-up/pixelation and frozen picture!

John Gale… like last night, frozen picture ” no Internet connection ” on Now TV , when everything else in our house was fine.  Bring back the switch on the wall

Roger Simmonds… Me!

Alan Essex… Me too

Mick O’Dowd… Yes but at least the sound quality of the set was better than the “flatties” today.

Jerry Wright… I remember those days!

Will Cornell… But it usually got you back to the show within a few seconds. Today we have a thunderstorm overhead, the satellite signal goes out, and in an hour or two after all the resetting etc you’re back to the show. Oh wait, the show ended 90 minutes ago. Ain’t progress wonderful?

Jan Warren… Yeah, my Dad was a brilliant “telly whacker”!! Haha

Garry Wonfor… We had a telly with a coin slot in the back…. Always remember my Dad, desperately rifling through his pockets for a half crown bit after it pinged off half way through the horse race he had a bet on.!!!…… Christ, I’m old!!!!

Stuart Moir… So are all of us Terry the years just roll by

Dave Nattress… Definitely used to work for my Dad on our old tele.   Possibly back in valve days maybe a bang on the top of the cabinet shook up the connections enough to cure the problem.

Lyn Farkley Appleyard… Oh yes….I’d forgotten that. The tap in the top of the great chunky pretend wood TV…no remote lol

Nick Bloomfield… Worse than the lines though was the positioning of the aerial. The small ‘portable’ ones where only by standing on one foot whilst leaning out of the window and pointing it at the next door neighbours would it work. And that was only on every second Tuesday…

Alan Pepper… Now known as ‘buffering’ !

Nigel Ford… We had a cast-off Ferguson, from my Grandad I think, that had a little red plastic screwdriver with an aluminium shank that we put in a tiny hole and twisted to adjust it. Don’t know if it was 405 or 625 lines?…. well before 25 or 624, … Oh no that was Chicago later that decade!

Photo 2 jamming with Joe Mulligan

Ian McGilvray… Joe was a great sax player.

Harry Randall… back in 67-68 I used to sing for his soul band whatever happened to Joe and Ron?  Shouldn’t that be Joe Milligan not Mulligan?

Alan Esdaile… Thanks Harry, have updated.

Ernest Ballard… Tony looks so young

Roy Penfold… I was about to say the same – mind you, he hasn’t changed much over the years

Paula Kerkvliet…. Joe passed away few years ago now . Ron lives in Hastings still.

Harry Randall… Love to catch up with him!

Tony Court-holmes… used to work there

Paula Filler… Hello my name is Paula I am Ron Milligan’s daughter. I just wanted to let you know dad passed away this week peacefully in Hastings

Harry Randall… So sad to hear Ron has passed away. I was lead singer in “The Lloyd Milligan Sound” with Joe and Ron back in 68, we went to Keel in Germany but got diddled on the contract. Had some great times, condolences to all concerned!

Paula Filler… Thank you Harry Randall I bet you all had a fantastic time knowing dad raise a glass as we send him on his way on Wednesday

Ian McGilvray… Thank You for sharing that. RIP Ron

Mark Richards… great shot at The Crypt

Harry Randall…  (Paula) I’ll raise a glass! So sad for your loss! I’d love any photos of us back in 67-68

Paula Filler… I will ask Sue, Joe’s daughter if she has any for you, Harry Randall
